In Theaters Today: All the Money in the World

From a screenplay by David Scarpa (The Last Castle, The Day the Earth Stood Still) that was based on a book by John Pearson (Painfully Rich: the Outrageous Fortunes and Misfortunes of the Heirs of J. Paul Getty), Ridley Scott tells the story of the 44-year old kidnapping of J. Pauly Getty III in All the Money in the World.

"All the Money in the World follows the kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer) and the desperate attempt by his devoted mother Gail (Michelle Williams) to convince his billionaire grandfather (Christopher Plummer) to pay the ransom. When Getty Sr. refuses, Gail attempts to sway him as her son’s captors become increasingly volatile and brutal. With her son’s life in the balance, Gail and Getty’s advisor (Mark Wahlberg) become unlikely allies in the race against time that ultimately reveals the true and lasting value of love over money."

All the Money in the World is in theaters today.
